This is on freebsd 5.3 (and 5.4) boxes - going back to stable-20060224 on the external S1 fixes it
the memory footprint is steady at 3.6mb over 7 hours - on my internal test S1 server (only 6
clients) it's grown from 2.2mb to 7.8mb since noon today.

At noon'ish when I restarted it on the internal server

looks like a memory leak to me.
